Performance, battery life of the HP 17-by3076nf
The HP 17-by3076nf is a 17-inch laptop computer designed for everyday use.
It actually delivers good overall performance capable of satisfying many users because it is built around a good amount of 8 GB RAM which is very useful in multitasking and a low power Ice Lake Quad Core i5-1035G1 processor.
In addition, this laptop benefits from enhanced responsiveness thanks to its SSD storage. Thanks to the SSD, this PC is much more fluid on a daily basis than if it were equipped with a simple hard drive, which implies in particular application launches and starts / stops much faster.
It must be said that an SSD is much faster than a hard drive while being less energy intensive, more robust and silent.
